Author Ted Gup, for the second time, has seen his book’s connection to a high-profile person send sales soaring.
The first time, though, was under more cheerful circumstances (praise from Colin Farrell in People magazine).
This time? An alleged co-conspirator of Jeffrey Epstein was seen holding a copy of Gup’s The Book of Honor: The Secret Lives and Deaths of CIA Operatives.
When the New York Post reported seeing Ghislaine Maxwell, who’s believed to have recruited many of Epstein’s victims, she was reading The Book of Honor at a fast-food restaurant.
The 2001 book subsequently shot up the Amazon sales charts; while paperbacks are currently sold out, ebook sales have fueled its rise to bestseller status.
You can read more about this strange ride in Gup's essay in the Washington Post.
(Please note that neither we nor the author is seeking to make any light of the Epstein case.)
